It sits on one half acre and enjoys incredible views of Lionhead Mountain and other peaks along the Continental Divide. You’re likely to see elk, moose and maybe even a bear in this beautiful wild area!

Six of us stayed very comfortably in this property. Loved the very easy to operate fire in the evening. Property very well equipped and clean. One small problem we did find the mattress on the bed next to the tv room rather firm (hard) but solved it by placing spare duvet and blanket on mattress but first night rather difficult. Everything else very comfortable and of good quality.
Manager Response:
Hello Shirley - Thanks for your kind words about your experience at West of West. We do try to make sure that the home has everything that you'd need to fully enjoy your vacation. And thanks for the heads up about the bed...we hadn't heard that before but we'll look into it and may add a mattress topper. - Suzy

Such a beautiful place to stay. We traveled with our best friends and neighbors and their little girl who is 3. We brought our 4 year old lab, Raider and our 15 moth old daughter. We had such a special time playing in the snow and exploring Yellowstone. The house was the perfect home base and super comfy for our crowd. Thanks so much! Can't wait to come back☺️

What a beautiful home! Took the family here for our Yellowstone vacation and could not be happier with Mountain Home. The house was clean, it had everything a family would need for a week-long stay... TVs, games, books, everything you need to cook your own meals, etc. The location is perfect, just a few miles from West Yellowstone so just a quick drive to the park every day. Very happy with our stay.
Manager Response:
Hi Darkwing_Duck! Wow, thank you so much for your kind words about West of West and our service!

Wonderful home with everything you could possibly need. Well-equipped, comfortable beds, quiet neighborhood with easy access to snowmobiling trails. Just a few minutes from West Yellowstone where you can find pretty much everything you need. Loved the gas fireplace to warm up at the end of the day. GREAT mud room for snowmobiling gear. Kitchen opens up to dining area and living room so everyone can stay connected. Nice master suite tucked away upstairs in the corner so it's private. Would highly recommend!
Manager Response:
Hello Jim - We're so happy that West of West worked well for your snowmobiling group! We built that GREAT mud room with snowmobilers in mind so that all your gear could dry and be organized in one, out-of-the-way place, so we're glad you appreciated it. We hope you'll make this an annual visit! - Suzy

We were a group of three couples meeting to enjoy snowmobiling in West Yellowstone, MT. The house was perfect for our gathering! The kitchen was fully stocked including pots and pans, dishes, glasses, and everything we needed to enjoy our time together. We cooked a huge breakfast in the morning before snowmobiling and enjoyed the warm fireplace when we got back late that evening. Everyone commented on how comfortable their beds were. The bathrooms were all first class. Don't miss this spot, it is beautiful!
Manager Response:
Hi Craig - Thank you so much for your kind words about West of West, and we're happy that it was such a great fit for you three couples. We love that gas fireplace as well; it's perfect after a day of playing in the outdoors. Thank you for being our guests and we invite you to come stay again soon! - Suzy

The reservation process was painless and you even get an app to help you with everything you need. We flew into Salt Lake City and drove through Grand Teton and Yellowstone parks to get to the cabin, it took some 7 hours due to the constant stop to check the amazing views. Finding the cabin in the dark can be a little tricky... but the directions provided were great. The cabin is well stocked with spices and appliances, everything was spotless clean, maybe the only thing to mention was that one of the bed wasn't made, it had the sheet on the top of it, but not an issue at all. The location is great to explore Yellowstone, if you want to maximize your visit. After an all day trekking in the park we could head home, stopping at the market for some steaks and grill on the nice Webber bbq they have there. We were very satisfied with the cabin and would love to go back in the winter.
Manager Response:
Hello Diesel_Travel - ...And we would love to have you back in winter; it's an amazing wonderland then as well! We're so happy that West of West worked well for you and that you found the amenities to your liking. We are so sorry about the un-made bed...we are a bit embarrassed about that! Thank you again fro being our guests and trusting us with your precious vacation time. - Suzy

The cabin was just as advertised. Plenty of room for 6 adults and two teenagers. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and spices. There are even travel coffee mugs--handy for early morning rides! Very clean. Nice to have a washer and dryer. We enjoyed birdwatching from the large porch. Only minutes from the town of West Yellowstone and the entrance to the National Park.

Hello FlaLaura - We're glad you appreciated the travel mugs...they are a must for early morning starts to Yellowstone!

This cabin is ideally located to stay in while visiting Yellowstone National Park - using the West Yellowstone entrance. With 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms it was more than enough space for use (husband, wife and granddaughter). Our 5 1/2 year old granddaughter loved the play area and she was able to build Lego creations while we rested after a long day on the park. We have visited Yellowstone several times and this is the first time we found this location. Arguably the best of the best! We loved it! (note that the dirt road to get there is a little bumpy - but other than that a huge fan.
Manager Response:
Hello Hotel_Lady - We're so happy that West of West worked well for you and your granddaughter. We also love that TV/play room that's stocked with Legos, Lincoln logs, etc for kids to enjoy an out-of-the-way spot while grown ups relax at the end of the day. We hope you'll come back with more of your family next time (hint, hint)! - Suzy

This home was such a wonderful winter retreat to enjoy some fun snowmobiling. We were a group of five and were all impressed with this lovely home and its location. We were able to park a five place snowmobile trailer and two vehicles with no issues. Inside this home was a perfect balance of rustic meets modern. It is also a very nicely furnished and clean home. After a day of riding we would come home and remove our gear in the tiled mud room and then enter the warmth of the main living area with the gas fireplace a welcome sight for our cold and tired bodies. Heading into the kitchen you will find ample working space to prepare your meals. Everything we needed was there and ready for our use, right down to the crock-pot for homemade chili and the mixer for making the mashed potatoes. The views from this home face lionhead mountain and make for some nice photo opportunities as the light changes. The beds were very comfortable and if you are into reading a book before retiring for the evening, there has got to be hundreds of books to select from for your enjoyment. Overall, we had a fantastic stay. Communication with the property manager was excellent. Internet worked well. I would certainly come back again and would most definitely recommend staying here if your plans bring you this way. P.S. We took a video of a moose from the side porch as it casually walked by. Great memories!
Manager Response:
Hello Anita - What a wonderful description of your time at West of West. Thank you for your thoughtful review and we're so happy that it was a good fit for your snowmobiling group. We love that we can ride literally right out the front door. We hope that you DO come back sometime soon...we pretty much have great snow every winter! And we would love to see your moose video. We were there just yesterday and saw tracks in the snow...but not the moose. - Suzy

West of West surpassed our expectations. It was a wonderful place to unwind in comfort after our long days in Yellowstone. The well appointed kitchen made us actually look forward to cooking our meals each day. The house was very comfortable, clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. We were a party of two, but noted how perfect it would be if we came back with a larger group. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. Highly recommend!
Manager Response:
Hello "marleybriska" - We're tickled that you liked West of West so much. The owners built it with Yellowstone vacationers in mind and intentionally made that kitchen one that you'd want to come home to at the end of day of exploring. So we're glad it worked for you! We hope that you DO come back, and bring some friends next time! - Suzy

We found this house through VRBO. The booking was very easy and straight forward. The house was exceptional! Well appointed, comfortable, easy access. The kitchen was to die for - if you like to cook, look no further. The linens were top quality. We truly felt like we had been given access to someone else's home for the week because everything was as nice, if not nicer, than home. While it wasn't my first trip, it was my family's and they loved it. Being able to come back to something other than a hotel room was so nice. I'll never stay at a park lodge again! It was so nice, that while we don't snowmobile, we may just have to come back out and rent some and learn so we can stay here again.
Manager Response:
Aw, thank you SO much for your kind words about West of West! And we would love to have you come back in winter. The area turns into a winter wonderland and we get so much snow there! And snowmobiling isn't all there is to do. You can cross country ski, go ice fishing, go sledding, and head to either Grand Targhee or Big Sky for a great day of alpine skiing. Thank you for being our guests. - Suzy

Booking was extremely easy. The girls at the office were extremely helpful. I loved the email updates with important information about your stay as your trip got closer...definitely write or print the info though because the wi-fi is not very good. That being said this was the best house we've rented: the lay out was perfect for us to include grandparents, it was easy to get to (once we found it...print out directions), very clean & nicely decorated, and the kitchen was well stocked. It is a drive to some of the further points in Yellowstone, but it worked for us. Thinking of bringing my mom back here next year! A fire put outside like the surrounding neighbors would be an awesome addition though.
Manager Response:
Aw, we're blushing Tina...thanks for your kind words about our staff. We try to take good are of everyone who stays with us. We're glad you found this to be a great central location for adventures to Yellowstone, the Tetons and Island Park. With regard to the home's layout, the owners actually designed it with a "grandparents'" room on the first floor - no stairs and a bathroom right there. We like your suggestion of a firepit and will pass it along to the owners! Thanks for being our guests and we hope that you do return with your mom! - Suzy UPDATE in 2017: Better wi-fi service is now available in the area and it has been upgraded. It's still not "city fast" but it's very usable.

Family of eight stayed for three nights while visiting YNP. Plenty of room to spread out. Convenient to the park-only eight miles from the West gate. We picked up groceries in West Yellowstone for breakfast at the house and lunches in the park. The house was well furnished and new. Only complaint was a lack of hot water for showers for eight people but that was managed by spreading them out. Overall, a good experience.

Our ninth annual XC ski weekend in West Yellowstone was the most comfortable yet with four couples staying at West of West. We all were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the entire house was, how nice the linens and bedding was, and how well out-fitted the kitchen was. Although we initially were concerned about being too far from town, it was a very easy short drive to the Rendezvous Trails, restaurants in West, and shops. The setting was attractive, peaceful, and I think every star in the sky was visible at night. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay.

We are from Nebraska and we stayed here for 4 nights for a family snowmobile trip, with my wife's parents and our two adult married children their spouses and our 9 month old grandson 9 of us total. This place surpassed our expectaions, we are a snowmobiling family and it was so nice to get right on the trails each morning less than a block away. It was the perfect amount of room and the house is beautilly decortated and comfortable. It is every bit as nice as the pictures online, thank you to the owners for letting us share your place it was the perfect place. We definatly will come back.
